And you can also use Panda USB Vaccine – Version 1.0.1.4 | Panda Research Blog to immune your pendrive from threats. It creates a un-modifyable autorun.inf file in the root directory and as most threats tries to create a autorun.inf file in the root directory, they fail as there can't be 2 files of same name at one place.
There's also a great tool for called Emsisoft Free Emergency Kit: portable malware scanner | Free removal of Viruses, Bots, Spyware, Keyloggers and Trojans
You can run it, choose custom scan and scan your pendrive even. Best of all, it's free.

Panais,

Another option is FlashDisinfector:

Flash Disinfector – free autorun.inf trojans removal tool | My Anti Spyware

It also creates the hidden autoruninf which protects the USB from future infection. Just be careful it doesn't give an FP like your ealerier thread from today.

Regards,
Golden

Just a note- if you plan to use Emsisoft emergency kit, it'll too create a autorun.inf file in the root directory on first run, delete that file and then use panda vaccine or flash disinfector or else they'll fail to create their respective autorun.inf file.
